HUGE Charity Auction

I am a member of "Art 4 Critters", a group of artists who donate a portion of their art sales to animal charities. Some members of our group have donated paintings for a big charity auction on eBay & hopefully raise a minimum of $1,000 (which is a steal!) for Happy Paws Haven Inc., - HPHI, a 501 (C)(3) Nonprofit corporation in Arab, Alabama. This is a "no kill" shelter, they do not euthanize their animals. The artists involved with this project have created small ACEO size (2.5" x 3.5") paintings of 'big cats' for this event.

This is the painting I donated for this charity event:

Illustration Friday: Opposites

There are 18 hidden images in this painting....

An Easter bunny in a Halloween costume celebrates Christmas by hiding presents instead of Easter eggs...ok I guess this isn't literally an "opposite" themed painting, but it does loosely fit the theme...and I haven't updated my blog or done IF in 3 months so please forgive me :) There are 5 ornaments, 5 presents, and 8 candy canes hidden in this painting - some are hidden in plain sight, some blend in with the scenery....go ahead, try & find them:D

Medium: Watercolor & Ink

Size: 2.5" x 3.5"
